A tribute band that can sell out top venues such as Blackpool Opera House and the Royal Albert Hall is coming back to Blackpool with its 2016 tour.

The Australian Pink Floyd are returning to the UK and will be at the Opera House on Saturday, November 5.

Tickets go on sale on Friday at 10am for the band so well thought of that Pink Floyd’s own guitarist and co-lead vocalist David Gilmour booked them for his 50th birthday celebration.

Since forming in 1988, they’ve sold more than four million tickets and performed in more than 35 countries.

The band began their venture as a part of the wave of Australian tribute bands that included Bjorn Again and The Australian Doors to arrive in the UK in the early 1990s.

In 1993, The Australian Pink Floyd Show performed at the first international Pink Floyd fan convention organised in conjunction with ‘Brain Damage’, the Pink Floyd fan magazine, at Wembley Convention Centre.

Thanks to steady growth throughout the decade, they went on to play bigger and more prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall in 2003, and running an arena tour in 2004 to celebrate of the 30th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’.

Tickets cost from £28.50 to £99 from the Winter Gardens online at www.wintergardensblackpool.co.uk.
